Pi Day Pie!

Mar 4, 2020

We're celebrating Pi Day from March 1st - 14th in Mathnasium with activities such as Pi Day Bingo, a Get Ins(pi)red Charity Contest, and various Pi Day decorations around the center! But don't let us have all of the fun, you can celebrate at home with various art activities and (of course) baking a pie! 

This year we'd like to spotlight this Pi Day Pie from Pillsbury as our Pi Day Dessert of choice. Not only does it look delicious, it incorporates the number pi fabulously!

Ingredients

3
refrigerated pie crusts (from 2 boxes Pillsbury™ refrigerated pie crusts), softened as directed on box

    Place pie on middle oven rack; place large cookie sheet on rack below pie plate in case of spillover. Bake 15 minutes. Reduce oven temperature to 375°F. Cover edge of crust with strips of foil to prevent excessive browning. Bake 40 to 45 minutes longer or until crust is golden brown and filling is bubbly. Let stand 2 hours before serving.
